Dining out is definitely one of my guilty pleasures. We try to eat at home as often as we can, in part because feeding our family of four at a restaurant can get rather pricey! Luckily for us (and you), I just stumbled across a new program that allows you to effortlessly earn cash back each time you dine out. This program from LivingSocial is called Restaurants Plus and is very simple. You just sign up and register the credit card(s) you use when you dine out, use them to pay at a participating restaurant and presto, instant cash back. You can even arrange for text message alerts letting you know how much you just earned.
Restaurants Plus is currently live in DC, San Francisco, Atlanta, LA, and San Diego, with more cities coming soon. There’s a search feature with a map on the Restaurants Plus website (see screenshot above) where you can easily search for restaurants in your area and even narrow it down by type of cuisine and the hour you plan on dining. Live in one of the areas mentioned above? Explore your city to see if your favorite restaurants are listed. In San Diego alone there are a ton of participating restaurants, ranging from fast food to casual and fine dining and covering every type of cuisine. We tried Restaurants Plus for the first time at a local frozen yogurt shop and got the text notification right away with how much we earned!
Now for the best part! Restaurants Plus has recently launched a Refer a Friend program for customers. Any new users that you refer can earn $20 cash back on their first transaction at hundreds of qualifying restaurants. Once their first transaction occurs, you will get $20 credited to your account, regardless of the amount of your friend’s transaction. Not a bad deal! The money you earn for referrals and for dining out is credited back to your credit card on file each month. Who doesn’t love free money?! Sign me up! Want to try Restaurants Plus for yourself and earn money for referring friends? Sign up for free and get 100% cash back on your first meal, up to $20!
